Heart Gifts...series

 
 
A Sure Way to a Happy Day
 
Happiness is something
we create in our mind.
It's not something you search for
and so seldom find_
It's just waking up
and beginning the day
By counting our blessings
and kneeling to pray_
It's giving up thoughts
that breed discontent
And accepting what comes
 as a "gift heaven-sent"_
It's giving up wishing 
for things we have not
And making the best of
whatever we've got_
It's knowing that life
is determined for us,
And pursuing our tasks
without fret, fume, or fuss_
For it's by completing
what God gives us to do
That we find real contentment
and happiness, too.
